The fixture comes four days after Worthing increased their lead at the top of the table to 13 points, grinding out a 1-0 victory away to Each Thurrock United at Rookery Hill on Tuesday evening:

Callum Kealy scored the only goal of the game in the 55th minute to give Worthing all three points in Essex.

Meanwhile, visitors Margate kept their playoff hopes alive with a 2-1 away win against lowly Brightlingsea Regent in their last run-out on Saturday, sitting in seventh and 10 points behind fifth-placed Enfield Town with a game-in-hand.

Recent meetings

The two sides met in the reverse fixture at Hartsdown Park back in December:

The Reds found themselves 3-0 down through a Vance Bola brace and a goal from Montel Agyemang after 55 minutes.

A strike from Ollie Pearce offered hope in the 63rd minute but a goal from Ben Greenhalgh in the 74th minute put the game beyond Worthing’s reach despite a consolation from Pearce in injury time, with the final score 4-2 to Margate.

Supporter Information

As we look forward to hosting Margate FC this Saturday, our thoughts are also with the people of Ukraine. We encourage our fans to spare what they can to help the people caught up in the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

We will be having collection buckets at the entrances and exits to the ground where you may make donations. All money raised will be paid to the Ukraine Appeal organised by the Disasters Emergency Committee, which brings together 15 leading aid charities who are experienced in providing support at times of humanitarian crisis overseas.

For more details visit their website: https://www.dec.org.uk/appeal/ukraine-humanitarian-appeal

If you’d like to help, please remember to bring along some cash to donate and show your support for the Appeal.

Please note parking at Worthing High School is no longer available, however the limited spaces at the Queen Street car park remain in use.

In an attempt to speed up the queues at the turnstiles, there will be a dedicated queue for Season Ticket Holders & prepaid tickets from 2pm on Saturdays (or 7pm on Tuesdays) for every home game, so for anyone who cannot make it to the ground early, they can avoid the cash and card payment queues and get into the stadium more quickly.

So if that’s you, head towards the left of the three original turnstiles on the east side of the ground and we will let you in through the side gate.

We’d still advise arriving in good time!

PLEASE NOTE: When buying your online tickets you will receive two emails.

1. Purchase confirmation email

2. Email with your QR coded ticket(s) attached.

We need to scan the QR codes on the tickets at the turnstile, so in the unlikely event that you don’t find an email with a ticket attachment or you are having issues opening the attachment on your phone, please contact dave@worthingfc.com to get the tickets re-emailed. Thank you.

Tickets are still available to purchase in advance online or on the day. The turnstiles will be accepting cash and card payments.

BAG SEARCHES

We are also going to be carrying out bag searches on supporters on arrival. Any prohibited/illegal items will be confiscated and will result in refusal of entry to the ground.

Matchday Timings

Admission is £12 for adults, £8 for concessions, £3 for 13-16 year-old, £1 for 6-12 year-old while those under 6 are free.
